There's a lot of talk these days about slowing down, simplifying, "seizing the day," but it isn't really happening. We all talk the talk, but the walk we walk is getting faster and faster, and we seem to be enjoying it less and less. Our problem is that, in searching for life, we pass it by.
Morning Sun on a White Piano is the perfect tonic for the freneticism of contemporary life. In twelve lucid, straightforward essays, Dr. Robin R. Meyers offers a brilliant guide to achieving the simple and sacramental life—not by planning the perfect vacation or dreaming of the perfect job, but by paying attention to what is holy, right under our noses: books, music, letters, and children. Morning Sun on a White Piano is about recovering the "lost arts of living." It's about hearing again, in a culture that has gone deaf. It's about seeing again, in a culture that's blinded. It's about feeling again, in a world that overstimulates itself to the point of numbness. If simplifying our lives means singing the song, Morning Sun on a White Piano challenges us to learn the dance—step-by-step.
